What's Your Line?

You have a magical business card that will appear in the hand of every editor in publishing tomorrow. It lists your name or pseudonym and your contact information. There is also just enough room for a single sentence of fifteen words or less, i.e.:

                     Paperback Writer

      Diagonally parked in a parallel universe.


So what's the line on your magical business card say?

    FYI, the word verification is: tzenn.
